  • Large skillet
  • stock pot


  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 2 cups chopped brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lb gnocchi
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)


  • Heat Made in Cookware 10" fry pan to a medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 tbsp butter. Once butter begins to brown, swirl pan until butter is a deep brown. Add mushrooms and toss in butter. Don't move them again until they're brown, then stir and repeat until mushrooms are completely browned. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, stir. Remove from pan and set aside. 
  • Add another tablespoon of butter to the pan, once it begins to brown, swirl the pan, continue to swirl until the butter is a deep brown. When butter browns, add brussels sprouts and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Saute until brussels sprouts are softened, about 3-4  minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from pan. 
  • Add the remaining butter to the skillet. Heat over medium-high. Again, once the butter begins to brown, swirl the pan. Continue to swirl the pan until the butter turns a deep brown and smells very nutty. Add cream and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, turn the heat down and simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Keep warm while you cook the gnocchi. 
  • Fill a 2-quart saucepan with water. Bring to a boil and season liberally with salt. It should taste as salty as the sea.  Add gnocchi. Cook for 3 minutes or until the gnocchi float to the top. 
  • Use a slotten spoon or sieve to transfer the gnocchi to the sauce. Add mushrooms and brussels sprouts. Toss everything until combined. If needed, add a few tablespoons of starchy pasta water, toss until you have a creamy sauce. (I needed about 3 tablespoons.) Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with parmesan cheese.
